Love Quotes Romantic - Kiss of Welcome

There is a kiss of welcome and of parting; the long, lingering, loving, present one; the stolen or mutual one; the kiss of love, of joy, and of sorrow; the seal of promise and receipt of fulfillment. It is strange, therefore, that a woman is invincible whose armory consists of kisses, smiles, sighs and tears?

Love Quotes Romantic - Love and Friendship - Emily Brontë

Love is like the wild rose-briar;
Friendship like the holly-tree.
The holly is dark when the rose-briar blooms,
But which will bloom most constantly?

The wild-rose briar is sweet in the spring,
Its summer blossoms scent the air;
Yet wait till winter comes again
And who will call the wild-briar fair?

Then scorn the silly rose-wreath now
And deck thee with the holly's sheen,
That when December blights thy brow
He may still leave thy garland green.

-Emily Brontë

Love Quotes Romantic - Camilla

"The cure of a romantic first flame is a better surety to subsequent discretion, than all the exhortations of all the fathers, and mothers, and guardians, and maiden aunts in the universe."

"No man is in love when he marries. He may have loved before; I have even heard he has
sometimes loved after: but at the time never. There is something in the formalities of the matrimonial preparations that drive away all the little cupidons."

-Fanny Burney (Mme d’Arblay): Camilla (1796)

Love Quotes Romantic - Wuthering Heights

If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be; and if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger: I should not seem a part of it. My love for Linton is like the foliage in the woods; time will change it, I'm well aware, as winter changes the trees - My love for Heathcliff resembles the eternal rocks beneath: - a source of little visible delight, but necessary.

-Emily Brontë: Wuthering Heights (1847)
